i never stressed it so idk, otherwise temps looked normal
no, it means you'll be choking your PC of low temp air, your parts will radiate heat inside the case and the air pulled into the case will be from every little slit and hole. so you will be pulling more dust into your case. you will see a benefit in temps if you set up your fan flow properly
i don't know why MSI wouldn't just offer a white variant of their card for the same price, so many people have done that paint mod. otherwise nice touch on the heat sink, makes it look extra slick
bro, do you keep the side panel off 24/7? otherwise you may wanna flip the ways the fans are facing on that AIO. cus all of your fans are pushing air out of the case
1440p will be hard to run on a GTX 1080 if you are looking to have ultra settings. most games you are looking at a med-high settings to get the 144fps+(i play siege at 1440p and run between med/high on a 1080 Ti). on top most pro players for CSGO run lower than 1080p anyways so 1440p will be a waste
As far as 240hz goes people can see a difference at higher levels of play, but it is pretty small. i would say shoot for a 240hz when they go on sale (r/buildapcsales is great for tracking) the alien ware 240hz went on sale in the past for $250. the 240hz won't do anything for your non-comp games though and the extra money would be better spent elsewhere than a new monitor as the benefit is very small
Very nice build, i love how the screens all line up the top edge, soothes my OCD
what desk are you using, or how did you set up the desk?
Edit: you monster, fix your window blinds!
that would look so much cleaner, in the end your the builder though, so its up to you if its worth it. the red LEDs can take away the red contrast that the liquid gives though so white would make it pop out alot more for sure!
probably my favorite featured build yet. the tubing is so sleek, from what i can see it even looks like a perfect or near perfect alignment. The thing i see most in hard tubed builds is the little bits of adjustment that seem off or unbalanced which can defeat a huge aspect of a clean looking build; however, your build looks like it has near perfect if not perfect tubing, the curves - alignment - flow all A+ with a nice red liquid to give it a hard contrast. On top all the parts fit in just perfect, everything seems to be cutting it close in terms of size, GPU almost cuts into the Radiator, Radiator almost into pump, Top Radiator almost cutting out your RAM. Looks like a pro built it, personally i think it looks better with the LEDs off in broad daylight, but since most of us game in the dark sadly that's not always an option. Otherwise this build is a solid 10/10, keep up the great work!
i love the tubing, i feel like some people get carried away and it can feel like the whole build is only the tubing. This build balances the tubing right, it looks great but is not in your face. Great Build!
what game are you playing in the pic?
lol, i got a build of my own to top out this thing, although i have not posted it yet
heck ya, cheaper and way more powerful. will keep the build running for years
they are pretty nice monitors, i'm more into a high refresh rate but they look stellar.
you cured the gpu slag, impressive!
